President's Message 



GROVER C. BOWMAN 

President 



TO THE CLASS OF 1950. 

You graduate in the year which marks the completion of one half of the twentieth 
century. You are now to become an active participant in the making of the second half 
of the most chaotic century of human history. By the good fortune of birth, you are 
citizens of the freest and most powerful nation on earth, and you have chosen for your 
life work the education of youth for citizenship in a free society. This is both a great 
privilege and a great responsibility. 

For this we hope the college has prepared you. 

You have learned the value of knowledge and understanding which lead to Truth. 
You have learned of childhood, and how children learn and grow. Above all, we trust 
you have attained a surer knowledge of yourself. 

Out of these possessions, may you, with optimistic spirit, join the great procession 
of teachers who, through all centuries, have brought light and given courage to humanity. 



Grover C. Bowman 
President

The finger of blame points to you, the entire faculty! We should have been per- 
fectly content to use our mascot, the Penguin called Willie, if it weren't for you. 
Unfortunately, our weary minds are so steeped in and cluttered with the classics we 
cannot escape them. If Dante travels through the dark wood of our yearbook it is 
because we could not detach him. But, at any rate, he satisfies our needs, interests, and 
abilities — as does Willie!

Senior Essay 



To the faculty: 

The class of 1950 marks the beginning of the end of an unusual educational period 
at our college. The pouring in of new students in the fall of 1946 warned you and the 
rather petite and feminine student body that the educational pot was beginning to boil 
For the most part, our class consisted of veterans. Looking back, it seems that we were 
often noisy and carousing and not particularly addicted to regular study habits. We 
remember twisting and turning the class hours into discussions and debates rather 
than the esoteric contents of the textbook. But the annals of our history show that we 
were doers as well as talkers. Our numbers gave us power, which now seems to have 
been misused. At any rate, we tried to stir the school, heedlessly sometimes, into a fer- 
ment of our own liking. That was the young us, the cock-sure us. 

Now, we have become, through your guidance, that of our parents, and even of the 
world's, young adults with a common, serious purpose. It is here, in these four years, that 
we have outgrown most of our adolescence. You, the faculty, have made us aware of the 
vastness of all knowledge. We have a touching acquaintance with and an appreciation 
of the background of all culture. You have endowed us with the will to learn, and, 
hence, the will to teach. 

Our single purpose, now, is to help save the world from destruction so that gener- 
ations to come may learn perfection of the absolutely guaranteed or-get-your-money-back- 
in-five-days little gadget for committing mass suicide is here. It is accepted that the 
mistakes of the past cannot be erased but can be utilized as teachers of the future. As 
a group of college graduates, we do not pretend to know the answer to salvation, but 
it is to that end that we bend our efforts.

History of the Class of 1950 



Well, what do you know! Four years have passed and the time has arrived for 
Willie Penguin, our historian, to write his tale of joy. Poor Willie! He really doesn't 
know where to start or what to say. 

Yes, Willie, we have been here for four years, and time has finally caught up with 
you because now you have to record all the glorious or should I say "gory" events. 
What! You can't remember what we did in our freshman year that was so outstanding 
or different? Well, let me remind you that we did all the things that other freshman 
classes have ever done, except that we went them one better. How could you ever for- 
get "The Male Animal", the inaugural of big time productions at N. A. S. T. C? So 
help me, Willie, you must remember that this was the year that men started playing 
basketball at the school, and it was our class that put this sport across in the first year 
of its birth. Basketball has risen to great heights in four short years, but we, "the 
Class of '50", can feel justly proud because we are indirectly responsible for the fine 
team we have today. Willie, even you couldn't have forgotten about the M. A. A. 
This was one of the first years in the history of the school that they bothered to have 
elections. Don't you remember, Willie, that in our freshman year we had more than 
four men? You thought that the school always had cheerleaders? No, Willie, this was. 
the first time the school had anything to cheer about — in the way of sports, that is. How 
about the gala "Sadie Hawkins Dance"? Don't you remember? That was when the 
women of the school could chase the men legitimately? The whole school turned out 
for this and people going by the school campus that afternoon must have thought we 
were all crazy, because men were actually running away from women — "What advance." 

And the more academic triumphs? Many of our classmates joined the Taconic 
Columns and some of the articles written by our class members were placed in places 
of posterity — for future reference. Of course we had to go to classes; how do you ever 
think we could have passed our finals if didn't? What's that you say? "Quite a few 
of our classmates flunked out?" Don't be silly: all they did was transfer. 

Of course the sophomore class was smaller, but what difference does that make? 
Yes, Willie, we still had to attend classes. We weren't Intellects yet, but don't forget 
that this was only our second year. Of course, we still had a basketball team, only it was 
better. The Drama Club production that year was "Kind Lady" and eight of the 
thirteen members of the cast were sophomores. You don't remember the big dance we 
sponsored that year? Well, no kidding, Willie; I don't understand how you ever got 



24 



this job! Yes, we had to take the regular three hour exams plus the annual Sophomore 
Tests, and guess what, Willie, we were no longer silly, silly sophomores, but we were 
now known as jolly, jolly juniors. Why were we jolly? Because now we were going 
to the training school at Mark's and even a dope like you should know that you have 
to be jolly when you are teaching children. Did we have very many interests? Just 
think back! Don't you remember? That's right; they were "numerous and varied." 
Certainly, the organizations in the school found themselves being led or at least swamped 
by the members of our class. The Bookstore was two of our class members' special 
interest. Be thankful to them, Willie, for they made you famous. They put you on the 
caps, sweatshirts, banners, and stationary and even had murals of you made. Did we have 
very much ability? How can you ever forget the "Western" satire we put on at Stunt 
Night that year? You've forgotten about Dr. Broudy? Willie, how could you! He was 
our class advisor. It is a good thing we had Dr. Mileham to take his place. You want 
to know what! Yes, Willie, we are now seniors. Don't you feel stately? Well, you 
should. What have we done this year? Well, glory be! You are the limit! Don't tell 
me you have forgotten "Father Monihan" in the Drama Club play. Yes, Willie, he was 
a member of your class even if you didn't recognize him. Of course, we are still 
attending classes; no, we have not become Intellects yet; yes, Willie, we have to wait 
till June for that. You don't think that You are going to graduate? Well, Willie, I hate 
to say this, but I don't think that you should. What's that Willie? You are afraid that 
you will forget something when writing the class history? Well, that's all right; you 
cannot remember all the things we did. 

So there, Willie, you see that quite a few things have happened in our four years 
here, and these are just a sample of them. So, come on, let's see you get busy on that 
class history! The Old Guard? Yes, Willie, we do have one, but I don't think that we 
should mention them. 
P.S. In case Willie forgets: "All the members of the graduating class wish to thank all 

of the faculty members who have faithfully guided us through four years at 

N. A. S. T. C. We are sure that your hard work will show good dividends before 

too many years have passed." 

—ROBERT J. DEAN

Junior Class History 



September 15, 1949 found us once more assembled to greet the old and welcome 
the new. With heavy hearts and graying hair we pored over our schedule. 

Yes! This year may well be titled the "Rush of 49." After many conferences, 
disputes, and discussions we collected our pencils, papers, books, and wits and proceeded 
to adjust to our ever-changing schedule. 

With the help of a sedative we managed to survive our first teaching assignment 
at Mark Hopkins. The poor children still don't know what struck them. 

Among the many new challenges came Classics III. With Classics came Plato! 
With Plato came justice! By the way, what is justice? With justice came exams! With 
exams came marks! With marks came . . . Where is justice??! 

Next came Junior Stunt Night. Ah! What a surprise! 

Next on the agenda is the Junior-Senior Prom. This, we hope, will add many 
fond memories to our treasur of cherished thoughts of our days at N. A. S. T. C. 

In the hurly-burly of exams, school picnic and graduation we can hear the strains 
of "Pomp and Circumstance" in the air. Oh no! It can't be! But yes, it is true! This is 
the end of our very profitable Junior year. And now we look forward to being stately 
seniors.

SOPHOMORES 






Sophomore Class History 



There may have been no flags on the September day that we returned to the college 
on the hill, but we paraded back, nevertheless. Our old friends who had returned joined 
us, gazing with awe at the rather overwhelming freshman class. For once in our lives, 
we were outnumbered, but it was a joyous defeat. 

This year we, now veterans, soon found our place in the scheme of things. From 
the Revolution through the Civil War, from Chaucer through Keats, from the essence 
of geography through twilight in Scotland we managed to wade, and if sometimes 
the water was over our heads at least we could float on the surface. 

The Sophomore Prom not only raised self confidence but also gave us a brief re- 
spite from drudgery. 

Exams! Shall we ever be ready for them and will they ever be quite as horrible 
as we expect? We faced the new semester with daytime enthusiasm, although most 
of us heard in our sleep the strains of "Whispering Hope." 

Among the pleasant memories of the spring semester are the sophomore stunt 
night, the Senior Prom and the fact that next year we will be juniors. Who could ask 
for a greater height? Another extremely important item is the fact that this year we 
became acquainted with a rather formidable gentleman whom the rest of the college 
seems to know very well. Who? Why, John Dewey, of course! 



At the end of our junior year I wonder what we shall think of ourselves as 
sophomores!

FRESHMEN 






Freshman Class History 



Where, oh, where are the pea green freshman? Let's hope the majority are safe 
at last in the sophomore class. The class started out as the largest ever admitted in 
S. T. C. N. A. There were, in its number, more Easterners than ever before and fewer 
veterans than in the three previous classes. We have been affectionately called the 
youngsters. We have proved ourselves capable of taking the lead in a great many of the 
school activities. This enthusiasm, which seemed to be attributed to the newness of 
college life, surprised the rest of the college by growing by degrees. 

Most of us settled down to book learnin' right away, but there were others who 
failed to realize the meaning of study until the first report cards were handed out and 
the face of the freshman class dropped a mile. 

The freshman class has proved itself fully blessed with talent. At the Halloween 
social and again at Stunt Night the talent displayed will linger long in the memories of 
S. T. C. N. A., — we hope. 

Now we close the cover on our first year at college. Within that cover we have 
locked many treasured memories and friendships that will carry us through the rest 
of our lives.

SPORTS 

Basketball was born at S. T. C. in the fall of 1946 mainly through the efforts of 
Mr. Malone and a group of enthusiastic youths. All members of the team were "Vets" 
except Lou Parisien. With Mr. Malone acting as pilot the team played a somewhat 
limited schedule, with few out-of-town games. 

The season ended with a record of 2 wins and 7 defeats 
haps, but surely the beginning of a promising activity. 

The memories of the first year's games, players, and celebrations (win, lose or 
draw) will long be remembered. The services of such stalwarts as Bud Little, Bob Dean, 



not impressive, per-

and Jim Dougherty were to be sorely missed in both playing and celebrating ability. 

In September of 1947 basketball was given a shot in the arm by the registration 
of new potential basketball material. To be quite frank, with the exception of Lou we 
had an entirely new team. 

Being optimistic, a much improved schedule was drawn up which included Siena 
and Champlain. At the time Siena rated 4th in the nation on defence Optimistic? 

Will we ever forget the trip to Siena when our newly hired coach, Roily LaFave, 
was accidentally left behind? 

The season did fulfill the promise of marked improvement, ending in 1 1 victories 
and 1 1 defeats. 

The team was again bolstered in '48 by "Big Ed" French and John Lilly, junior 
transfer from Temple. These "giants", now of S. T C, plus the already present nucleus 
forced us again to seek new horizons; so we joined the New England Teachers A. C. and 
booked Williams College. The coaching duties were taken over by Jim Doran, a cap- 
able, conscientious, and very enthusiastic basketball man.

The season began with a winning streak that extended over 8 games, and we were 
able to hold Williams to a 61-58 overtime win. 

The remainder of the season proved not so successful, however, ending with a 10 
and 6 record and placing 4th in the N. E. T Conference. Our record, while not particu- 
larly impressive, was significant in that we had launched a campaign to win the Confer- 
ence title. 

As this past season rolled around the talk at S. T. C. was almost exclusively the 
Conference and Williams. In the results we find both disappointment and success. 

At Williams we fared not nearly as well as the previous year. The Goliath proved 
too much for the David. Our Conference story was far brighter. We held the lead all 
season, losing only to Keene and edging Gorham for the title. 

The Conference title was a great prize to us. It is the manifestation of years of ef- 
fort, capable coaching, and great spirit. 

However, it is our hope that even though this was "our year" in the Conference it 
will not be the peak of our success. Let the rivalry we've built up with Keene be con- 
tinued, let the ability and calibre of our players be ever improving, and most important 
let it foster spirit within the school. We've watched the birth and evolution of basket- 
ball at S. T. C. May this past year be just another step in the development.
